The “SCULPTURE” is an object found at the intersection of the streets Simón Bolívar, Chile-España and Los Leones. The “SCULPTURE” is covered by a sheet of acrylic fixed to the pouch by security screws. The security screws are not only bolted but also glued; this fact makes it impossible to remove from its packing the acrylic sheet, as such, the “SCULPTURE” during flight or transit in the respective airports. The security code of the pouch is 417 and represents the month April of 1917.
